Wednesday, March 09, 2022: 8:35 AM - 9:10 AM
Agriculture and food systems are facing multiple dauting challenges including the demand of global food and nutrition security, consumer and industry supply, and circular economy toward sustainable future. Finite land, water and other natural resources of the Earth used for agricultural and food production and processing have already largely been exploited. Climate change and variability further exacerbate global agricultural production. Current practices, products and applications need to be much improved in terms of resource use efficiency to protect the environment, ensure safe and nutritious food supply, and sustain long term development. User-inspired ideas and transformative solutions emerged from multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches will likely be better positioned to address system-framed challenging research questions and to lead successful inquiry. Nanoscale science, engineering and technology have enabled numerous advances that provide promises for sustainable agriculture and food system by the convergency of physical and biological sciences, biotechnology, information sciences, social sciences, and other disciplines. The presentation will focus on recent research advances in nanotechnology applications towards sustainable agriculture, food, and the environment. It will highlight some examples of nanotechnology R&D supported by USDA/National Institute of Food and Agriculture that address sustainability, vulnerability, health, and joy of living of society relevant to food and agricultural production, processing, and consumption. The efforts on advancing analytical science and developing new tools for supporting precision farming, promoting agricultural productivity, and ensuring food safety will be highlighted.
